Morristown Pediatric Dentistry

Morristown Pediatric Dentistry has provided the highest quality of dental care for children of the Lakeway Area in an atmosphere that is child-oriented, with an amazing friendly staff and exceptional service. Dentists in the practice are Dr. Aleigha Helderman and Dr. Drew Mallard. Dr. Helderman loves being a dentist and working with children. She aims to please and wants every experience to be amazing.

Dr. Helderman has been the dentist at MPD for eight and a half years. Growing up in Oxford, North Carolina, she got to see the dental field early in her life as her father was a general dentist and her mother was a pre-kindergarten teacher. She loved going on field trips and interacting with her mother’s students, but loved the hands-on scientific aspect of dentistry. Helderman’s life calling combined the best of both worlds.

When she’s not educating patients and parents on having a healthy smile, she’s outside on the lake or reading. You may also see Aleigha out in the community at her church, the Morristown Area Chamber events, at Helping Young Professionals Excel (HYPE) events and Hamblen County Foundation for Educational Excellence and Achievement (HC*EXCELL) events.

Helderman completed three years of college, earning a bachelor’s degree in biology. She also went four years to dental school and a two-year pediatric residency program with a master’s in public health.

Helderman is dedicated to her work and working with children. She aims to please and wants every patient’s experience to be amazing. Morristown Pediatric Dentistry’s office is designed for children, not adults. Most dental offices look like dental offices. When you come through the front door, you will know right away that this is not your typical dental office. This is place kids want to come because it’s a fun place to visit. The waiting area has a fun and interactive play area for little ones, along with video games for bigger kids.

MPD’s commitment to you is to provide your children with the highest quality dental care and amazing customer service. The practice trusts that you will find the atmosphere child-oriented, the friendly staff and the service exceptional.

MPD’s team is amazing. The practice chooses each of their staff for their friendliness and ability to build relationships with children. Not every person was born to interact with children all day – but they were. MPD wants children’s dental health to be a priority to you and them, so parents are welcome to be with their child throughout their appointments.

Helderman is committed to Lakeway Area communities, often sponsoring local nonprofits or hosting events that benefit children. She knows the importance of giving back to a community that supports her practice.
